October 2011 - Narcissism is Necessary

Archive | October, 2011

Better be dorky than sorry.

Some bastard knocked my car’s side mirror out clean. My heart bled for my suzy but shit happens.

# – Wu wu wu wu wu.

I don’t realise how much I use my mirrors until I lost one. I couldn’t drive. On top of that, it was raining. I passed driving duty to the BF. He drove Hyderabad style from Jalan Ampang to Ikea. He’s my hero!

# – A picture from our Hyderabad trip last year. Side mirrors? Meh.

Got this little mirror for under RM5 at Ace Hardware.

# – This picture so artsy right?

And some sticky tape. By the way, these Scotch branded sticky tape goes for RM4.30 for 5. Dirt cheap and damn sticky!

# – Adjust the position…

# – Tape it up.

# – Stabilise mirror with tissue. Scott brand by the way…they lasted like a week through rain and shit!!!

# – Thumb up!

# – Better be dorky than sorry.

Almost tempted to leave the damn mirror there when we found out that a replacement would cost RM610 for a new one and one from the scrap yard also already RM390. Gawddamnit!!! That’s like a dive computer URGH!!!

Moral of this story: Always fold your mirrors in when you’re parking on the roadside. Actually, just find a real parking space. Or, take public transportation. Yeah.

SPONSORED POST: Making online gambling less risky.

So many online casinos have mushroomed in the past year that it is so hard to know whether those websites are genuine or are just plain elaborate scams. Currently, there are really no regulations or law for controlling online casino businesses so it is very easy to stumble upon a bad apple.

Fake or dishonest online casinos can be very detrimental. One may lose money due to games that are dealt unfairly or in some cases, have to wait a terribly long time before receiving their winnings.

Besides those issues, unscrupulous online casinos may also perpetuate gambling addiction problems, anti-social behaviors, obsessive compulsive traits and social ills.

Imagine the scenario of a gambler who keeps losing money due to unfairly dealt games at an unreliable online casino. It would be extremely difficult for that person to log off from said website as it is only natural to want to recover the loss of money. This would ultimately result in that person betting more and more of his money, spending more and more time gambling and developing ignorance towards the welfare of his or her family, work, as well as health.

Also, one of the worst case scenarios, of course, is that one does not even receive any payout at all even when they have won. Unfortunately, it has happened before; once too many times. Imagine if they had played at an honest and dependable online casino, they would not have been involved in such a terrible predicament. They would have actually gotten their winnings assuming they’re playing at a reputable casino with similar odds.

While these issues are getting more common by the day, online gamblers no longer need to navigate blindly on the Internet. It is no longer about luck to be able to stumble upon a reputable online casino.

There is now an independent, non-affiliated, community-driven website which compile database of online casinos – rating and reviewing them so that any user could find out the best online casino suited to their every need.

From factors such as fund transfer methods, individual style of playing, types of game options to affinity for sleek graphics or not, gaming format, language or even the technology of platforms used, one will surely be able to find the perfect online casino from there. It is an extremely comprehensive and informative website for all kinds of online casino participants, whether for beginners or veterans.

Since the reviews are all from actual online casino gamblers or users, they are always honest, detailed and reliable. So, contrary to beliefs, gambling activities can also be fun, responsible, controlled & harmless as long as one participates with an informed and educated mind as well as is completely aware of all the risks and repercussions involved.

As such, a credible source of online casino reviews is extremely vital and helpful in encouraging healthy gambling behaviors as well as preventing participants from falling victim to fake, unscrupulous online casinos which are just fronts for cheating off people’s money and time.
